Game Vortex writes: "Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War: Soulstorm is a stand-alone expansion for Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War. As with the previous expansion, Dark Crusade, you don't have to own the original to enjoy the expansion; the only limitation is that you can't use all of the races in multiplayer games. Though a competent expansion, Soulstorm is probably something only fans of the series will enjoy.
After four years, Dawn of War's visuals are beginning to feel a little out-of-date, though they still hold up well enough. Like its predecessors, Soulstorm does an excellent job at building a dreary, war-torn environment. Since each of the new races is essentially a cousin of already existing races, they integrate with the original races and don't feel at all out place. At the same time, each as its own style. The Dark Eldar have a black leather, whips n' chains look while the Sisters of Battle's units, which include pipe-organ tanks and a giant angel, also make them one of the game's more eccentric factions."
